Spicy egg

Spicy EggFinally I have found a hobby that is becoming bigger addiction than blogging or cooking. I have been knitting a lot these days(Check what I am upto at my art blog). I am enjoying it thoroughly, so I am spending very little time in kitchen.

For both of us, eggs fit in any meal of the day. I get bored of eating same dish very soon, so I experiment with it. I usually make dal/gravy and some spicy egg side dish and our dinner gets ready in no time. I prepared this a couple of days ago and we loved it.

Ingredients:
3 boiled eggs
1/2 cup onion
8-10 curry leaves
1 tea spn chili powder
1/8 tea spn  shahjeera
1/2 tea spn ginger-garlic paste
3 cloves
1″ cinnamon
1/4 tea spn coriander seeds
Oil
Salt

Method:
Heat oil and fry 3-4 curry leaves, shahjeera, ginger-garlic paste, cloves, cinnamon, coriander seeds, onion till onions turn slightly brownish. Add salt and chili powder. Fry for a min and grind to a smooth paste(do not add water).
Peel the eggs. Put 3 deep cuts into each egg, take care not to break the egg. Stuff the paste into the slits.
Heat oil in a pan and slide the eggs into it. Add any remaining paste and curry leaves. Close the lid and keep it on a medium heat. After few minutes, open the lid and slightly stir the eggs, cover the lid again. Fry for another few minutes. Serve hot with lemon wedges.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 20mins
